Patient Comments (3)
Columbus, GA |
It is very difficult to schedule a sick visit with the provider or even the NP! The wait time even for scheduled appointments take forever. Also, communication is very poor and staff is not helpful. Dr. Alappan never did a hgb or lead test for my child at the age markers (actually did not know it was required by law until I changed providers).

Dr. Alappan has been our pediatrician for the past 12 years. From the time that I was pregnant with my first child, she has always been open and honest about everything that I need to know. She is extremely knowledgeable and uses that knowledge to give the best care for my children. I have never had to second guess anything that she has told me and I am so grateful to have her as my children's doctor. I highly recommend her.

Thankfully, my child is happy and healthy, however any time I've called about a sickness, Dr. Alappan has been able to see my child the same day. As a parent, it makes me feel better knowing she and her staff aren't too busy and can work him in, rather than referring us to another doctor or the ER.
